The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) and the political factions threatened on Monday to carry out a series of measures against an Israeli military order to expel thousands of Palestinians from the West Bank.

Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah party's central committee, told Xinhua that the PNA is considering a complete freeze of security coordination and cooperation with Israel if the Jewish state implements its military order of expulsion.

Meanwhile, leaders of six Palestinian factions, including rival Islamic Hamas movement and Fatah party, met in Gaza on Sunday night to discuss the consequences of the Israeli military order issued last week to expel non-West Bank and non-East Jerusalem Palestinians to the Gaza Strip.

"The PNA is seriously studying a series of options in response to an Israeli military order to expel thousands of Palestinians out of the West Bank and East Jerusalem," Zaki said, adding "one of these options is a complete freeze of all kinds of security coordination and cooperation with Israel."

The PNA has established advanced levels of security coordination and cooperation in the West Bank with Israel in accordance to Oslo peace accords and the U.S.-backed Roadmap plan for peace in the Middle East.

"If Israel starts its policies of transfer and expulsion against the Palestinian people in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and keeps the confiscation of lands and the military occupation, we will stop all types of security coordination with Israel," said Zaki.
